Day 2: Bologna Children's Book Fair 2015 Mar 31 2015


The sun is soon to set over the second day of Bologna Book Fair 2015. Our amazing illustration agents have been hard at work in meetings, but managed to take some time away from the stand to take a look around the Fair and have spotted work from our truly brilliant illustrators all over the Halls. There's an absolutely enormous spread of James Newman Gray's adorable woodland artwork, and Jo Parry's soft, cuddly illustrations on the Lion Hudson stand; Louise Anglicas' charming graphic work for Igloo on the Bonnier stand; and Sophia Touliatou's bright, quirky, beautiful work on the Usborne stand. We've also spotted a couple of our LaB success stories on display too which is so exciting - Peter and the Wolf by Ayesha Lopez is on display on the Five Mile Press stand, and Magnus by Claire Shorrock can be seen on the Lion Hudson stand. We're so proud of both of these author-illustrators to have their debut picture books showing at the biggest trade show in the children's publishing world.

Be sure to follow us on twitter @advocateart01 for live updates from the show (and the much emptier office!) and stay tuned for more updates on the blog.
